This year’s D23 Expo event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, near the Disneyland Resort, on September 9, 10, and 11. The D23 Expo was to have taken place in 2021, as the event is usually held every two years, and the last Expo was in 2019. But because of the growing coronavirus pandemic at the time, the event was pushed ahead to 2022.

It’s hailed as the “Ultimate Disney Fan Event,” and for good reason. The exciting Disney fan event boasts everything Disney in one place: Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Star Wars, Marvel, PIXAR, Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Legends, Walt Disney Studios, and more!

This year, Walt Disney‘s Gulfstream plane will be on location at the D23 Expo as part of an exhibit called “Mickey Mouse One: Walt’s Plane,” which will be presented by Amazon. The plane will be completely restored and on display for fans, and we can’t wait to see the exciting piece of Walt history up close!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
